Sorptivity-based Service Life Predictions for Concrete Pavements

  title={Sorptivity-based Service Life Predictions for Concrete Pavements},
  author={Dale P. Bentz and Mark A. Ehlen and Chiara F. Ferraris and Edward J. Garboczi},
The degradation of concrete pavements is often controlled by the transport of a deleterious species (chloride or sulfate ions, or water in the case of freeze/thaw) into the concrete. With this in mind, a three-year research project, funded by the Federal Highway Administration, has culminated in the development of sorptivity-based service life models for concrete pavements and bridge decks. To develop a service life model, one needs to identify and model the suspected degradation mechanism… CONTINUE READING
